This show was billed as "Omaha Diner," Top 40 as you've never heard it before. All songs have touched, however briefly, #1
on the Top 40 pop chart. Four storied musicians attempting to re-define a format that forever perverted the way we experience music.
You may love Top 40 (doubtful), you may hate it (probable), you may not care about it at all (liar), but you cannot escape it.
Omaha Diner is many things: the world's definitive virtuoso of the seven-string guitar, the pioneer of saxophonics, a recipient of the 2012
Guggenheim Fellowship for composition, and a Grammy nominee. Omaha Diner is at home in all situations in and beyond the world of music -
not only scoring one of the films of legendary director Robert Altman, but performing in another one as well.
Sitting in a diner in Omaha, Nebraska in 1954, Todd Storz noticed that a teen-age waitress selected the same song on the jukebox over and over.
At that moment, Top 40 radio was born, joining the TV dinner, the Reuben sandwich, the bobby pin, the ski lift, and (some claim) fuzzy dice on
the list of famous and infamous inventions from the city that sits atop the Strategic Air Command.

Thanks for the show. Track 11 is Our Day Will Come. Written by Bob Hilliard and Mort Garson, it was a #1 for Ruby and the Romantics in 1963. Covered by Isaac Hayes, Pete Anderson, Amy Winehouse and many others. Frankie Valli got to #11 with it in 1975
